Hi my name is Sarah and I am 18 years old. I am the current New Zealand Figure Skating Senior Champion and am from Dunedin, I have been on the ice for 11 years and I have represented NZ for the past 10 years.

 Ice skating in New Zealand is a minority sport therefore finding funding is difficult. It will cost $11 000 this year for me to skate not counting equipment, camps, and competitions. I wish to bring New Zealands profile and  standard of ice skating up and for us to one day have NZ figure skaters at the Olympics - hopefullly if I can get the funding or sponsership it will be in the next Olympics.

I have been invited to attend a training camp in Los Angeles the Summer Camp of Excellence - this would be incredibly beneficial as I would have the chance to skate with high level athletes and train up to 30 hours per week!   In this camp I would receive intensive coached conditioning with some of the worlds best coaches.!


What does this mean for me?  I would be closer to representing NZ at the Olympics plus I get to put NZ on the map with world skaters - as Im the only  representative of  NZ at the camp. 

The money raised here will go towards camp fees ( coaching and ice time) flights and accomodation. After the camp I hope to participate in a competition in Chicago, Illinois where skaters from all different US states come to gain competition experience.

Please help me  to represent NZ -  the $3,000 is for this chance to represent NZ at the USA camp, if I can raise enough money  it would go towards my next competition in July.

I thank you all for believing in me and helping me represent NZ
